I have been quite enjoying Chanel's newly launched Le Blanc Essence Lotion Healthy Light Creator, and boy, I actually quite like their renovated Le Blanc range.
Scent & Consistency
Chanel Le Blanc Essence Lotion carries their signature floral scent, which isn't anything surprising, but I would say that the texture is something special😉 It has a milky looking mostly opaque watery consistency, yet it gives a beautiful glow to skin once it's absorbed.
Although it isn't technically a bi-phase essence lotion, it still carries that light oil finish without any sticky or masky residue.
It absorbs into skin fast and leaves skin satiny smooth to touch with suppleness.
A powerful skincare that tones skin and enhances the appearance of healthy pure light. The milky texture delivers a fresh sensation and, after a few seconds of massage, transforms into a comforting, deeply penetrating lightweight oil. With use, the complexion appears soft, smooth, plump and luminous.
At the heart of the LE BLANC formula are two signature ingredients. Ume Flower Extract — a natural, exclusive* ingredient — promotes vitality and resistance against both internal and external stressors. Ume Flower Oil works to deeply nourish and moisturize. These ingredients combined with pearl-like pigments help keep skin looking bright and revitalized.
*Extracted from the mostpremium variety of Ume Flower, cultivated in a designated field owned by CHANEL with a specific extraction process
How to apply
Apply every morning to cleansed face, neck and décolleté with fingertips or a cotton pad. Follow with LE BLANC serum and cream.

You can use the essence lotion either with or without a cotton pad, but I would recommend using bare hands if your focus is more on hydration as I've found that it gives more suppleness to skin. Though, I would use the cotton pads for targeted areas like patch masks before make-up when I need a light base on the day. The way I do it is pretty simple; you just need to get a couple of cotton pads, halve the layer and saturate them generously. Then place them on to your face and leave on about 5 minutes while you do your hair, then take them off.
I use this method a lot more often when I'm on my cycle as I've found that Chanel Le Blanc Essence Lotion helps healing my hormonal spots while providing enough hydration. It is certainly a great companion not only to a brightening skincare regime but also to hydrating one. If you have oily combination skin and even find the majority of lightweight hydrating serum still a bit too heavy and rich, I suggest you to try out Chanel Le Blanc Essence Lotion as it gives both sufficient hydration and a smooth canvas for make-up. If you are looking for a boosting essence-in-lotion to use all year round, I recommend Chanel Le Blance Essence Lotion.
